Justin Timberlake’s no good, very bad luck seems to be continuing this week, with the entire Internet pretty much unanimously agreeing that his Super Bowl halftime show was a fumble. And people weren’t too crazy about his Bob Ross-esque Stella McCartney-designed custom suit, either. Those shoes, though! They were the sole (sorry) redeeming quality of the performance.

The super-rare pair of Jordans — dubbed the Air Jordan 3 JTH — were crafted in collaboration with venerated Nike designer Tinker Hatfield just for the occasion. However, they weren’t a one-off; the shoes were released via Nike’s SNKRS app right after the first touchdown of the second half. They use the original Air Jordan 3 sketch as their foundation, right down to the 3M Swoosh on the upper — a detail that was included in Hatfield’s original AJ3 blueprint, but never made it to the final design. They also feature a white tumbled leather upper, “Cement” print overlays, and Timberlake’s signature on the inside of each tongue.
Good luck copping these, though. They sold out right quick and are now gone from Nike’s website. Apparently, only 500 pairs were released, causing their aftermarket retail value to skyrocket. If you really want them, you can find them on sites like StockX or eBay for as high as $2,500. (They originally went for $200 US.)
Or you could just wait — Jordan Brand says there will be more Air Jordan 3 JTH styles released at select stops of Timberlake’s tour. Although, honestly, paying the extra $2,000 may be worth it if it means not having to sit through Man of the Woods live.
